Gather your team, or cheer them on and join the fun! Boats start launching from the Station Road in New Limerick at 10 o'clock Saturday morning. The canoe race will end at the Boat Landing on Highland Avenue in Houlton.

The river is high this year, so climb in, maybe get a little wet, and enjoy the fast ride.

A $15.00 entry fee will get you a great t-shirt and a fun filled day!

To register, complete the registration form and mail or drop it off in person to the Houlton Chamber Office on Main Street before Friday, May 2.
